21 City Road, London E.C.
This was the head office of the Gramophone Company in London from 1902 until 1911. It was still used by them until about 1914 and Chaliapin's 1913 recordings were made there. It is just north of 'The City' of London (the historic business centre), and this area was the centre of the British record and talking machine industry for several decades from the 1890s.

And I had my lunch there today!

It was used by various companies after 1914 but when I first knew this area about 1990 it was an open space used as a car park. It was this right up until about two years ago when a building next to it was turned into a hotel and extended to here, with shops and cafes on the ground floor. I work around the corner.
